COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in wine barrels with orange peel, Sofie is a tart, dry, sparkling ale. A subtle, spicy white pepper note, a hint of citrus from the orange peel and a creamy vanilla finish make Sofie an intriguing choice for Champagne drinkers and beer drinkers who are fond of Belgian Saisons.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Cloudy, lemon-gold pour with a fast-dissipating white head, only temporary, spotty lace. Really nice yeasty must aroma with a strong carbonic element, light citrus, promises a dry taste. Flavor starts off similarly, yeasty, citric dry, estery hints of peach and hawaiian punch, but also a flatter generically malty side to it that peeks through an otherwise really nice golden ale. Medium body, lightly astringent in a good way, dry, warm, very lively.

walrussell (162) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2009
Incredibly delicious. Best saison Iíve had, maybe best Belgian wheat Iíve had (how much wheat is in here? - or does it just have wheatish spices?) Orangey tangy sweetness with a bit of funk, banana, clove, sparkly vanilla.. Light and refreshing too! So good.

milewide (1513) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2009
Cloudy, light straw color. Modest head. Typical Belgium spicy taste upfront, but orange tang in aftertaste. "Wine" style label is an attention grabber!

Kevin (2084) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 3, 2009
looks like cloudy pee with a thick white head. something i see way too much of, only not with a head. i really need to drink some water someday. syrupy nose that is floral with a touch of yeast. really thick and chewy, tastes sweet nectar of some light fruit.whew, not one to let warm up. gets a bit sulphury. iím not fond of the spices. all in all it ainít bad, a bit too wit-ish for me. 3 6 6 2 12
